Reaching the front of Jantar Mantar

The demonstration has condemned the statement of the Central Government for not having the death toll of farmers. The Punjab government has put the official death toll of Punjabi protesters at 220, but the Morcha has not confirmed this number. The Morcha says that 540 deaths have taken place in the struggle during the farmers' movement.

If the government does not want to accept it, then the official figures of the state governments should be seen. Failure to do so shows the anti-farmer attitude of the government. To promote unity and harmony among the farmers, Kisan Mahapanchayat was organized at Palwal Anaj Mandi. To join the Farmer's Parliament, women from different states of the country are reaching the front of Jantar Mantar.

Farmers are opposing the leaders in Punjab-Haryana

In Punjab, BJP leader Balbhadra Sen Duggal was shown black flags of farmers in Phagwara. Haryana BJP state unit president Om Prakash Dhankhar faced protests in Badli. In Haryana's Hisar village, BJP leader Sonali Phogat was shown black flags by farmers, and a day earlier in Rudrapur, the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand had to face opposition from farmers.

Farmer interests were sidelined

The United Kisan Morcha alleges that after coming to power mainly through the votes of farmers, the government has sidelined their interests. The peasants were forced to raise their voices and demands in a sincere, patient, and peaceful manner. The protests have given a new identity to the unity and prestige of the farmers in the country.
